- James Kelley Sr. was the first of the Kelley family to settle in the Oakville area. While “Kelley” may appear to be an Irish name, it is in fact a corruption of “MacKelley”, and the family can be traced to Southern Scotland. James was born in Wentworth County on February 11th, 1848, and moved to Oakville looking for work as a blacksmith. He married Eliza Ribble (1826 – 1901) on Sept 20th 1848 at the Oakville Wesleyan Methodist Church. Mr. Kelley lived at Front and Thomas Sts., (then Colborne St.) near Dunn, behind his hardware store at Dunn and Lakeshore. He died on Oct. 6th, 1893.
